You want a story, eh? Well... I suppose I've got one to tell.
It's my story: It's a bit weird, it has its quirks, and I'm fairly certain it'll make some of you start smiling like idiots...
But hey, you want a story right?
So I'll give you one and as an added bonus, I'll start from the very beginning.
Now let's turn back the clock, shall we?
————— Home Town —————
Ugh... Another day.
What day is it? Oh right... Saturday, 19th of October.
I awoke to a blinding light...
My stupid bedroom has a ceiling window that lets the sun in at around 9:00 every morning regardless of what time of the year it is.
This means no oversleeping beyond that.
Sighing, I got out of bed. At least there wasn't any school today, I don't think I could handle much more of it.
What point was there in school? To learn and become a better member of society? Well... That's not going to happen considering the position I'm in.
Hi, I'm a 16 year old high school sophomore, name's Sol.
... Yeah, that's right, I'm named after the sun. Haters gonna hate.
Did I mention I'm an orphan? I have absolutely no idea what happened to my parents, nobody else knows either. Since as far back as I can remember, I've been taken care of by the government.
If I'd describe my social life, I'd say I have a few friends,
nice people, people you can rely on, but nobody that really understands me.
I don't blame them, I don't understand myself most of the time, hahahaha.
I went downstairs to the kitchen to make some breakfast... Though I'm an orphan, it's not as though I can't take care of myself. I was taken out of the orphanage at about a year ago because I insisted for the longest time that I wanted to be on my own, to the point it's been pretty annoying.
So some people in the higher ups of the government that finally got fed up with my constant nagging saved bit by bit personally until they bought me my own home so I could move out.
That was kind of them... Was that legal? I didn't care
I wanted to be independent and so I threw myself into a situation where I had to be.
So far, so good.
Wondering what to make in the kitchen, the doorbell rang.
Upon checking who it was, it was Hayden, an old buddy who's also an orphan.
He didn''t wait for me to say anything; the moment I open the door, he just says right upfront to me: "Hey, Sol... Everyone's meeting up down by the park downtown later. You coming?"
"Well..." I said, "You're certainly very upfront and informal..."
When Hayden said that "Everyone" was meeting at the park, he was referring to the other orphan kids.
Now if only I could remember why we were mee-
"Oh right... Yeah, the issue of gathering enough money to leave town on that trip, right?"
"Right-o, Solo!" Hayden tended to poke fun at the fact that I spent a lot of time alone. "You're coming, right?"
I shrugged. "Well, I've got nothing better to do. What time is it?"
Hayden struggled for a bit... Ha, looks like he didn't remember very well himself.
"Uh... I think at around 4?"
I was still half-asleep and just wanted the guy out of my hair, so I just said, "Oh, okay, see you later then." and slammed the door in his face.
Was that cruel? Nah, people are used to such actions when it comes to me.
They know I just cope with what happened last year by being like that.
I went back to the kitchen and started to fry an egg and looked at the clock on the counter, still 6 hours until the meeting time.
The egg was done cooking...
... So I ate it...
Cool story, huh? Well, it only gets more boring from here on out.
To be honest, I had been playing Accost of Responsibility: Updated Military Combat 2 until about 3 in the morning so really I had only gotten 6 hours of sleep and woke up horribly to burning sunrays in my eyes.
That said, I had eaten my share of food and felt pretty damn tired, so I decided that it might do me some good to get some sleep until the meeting.
Fortunately, the sky seemed to be getting cloudy so I set the alarm on my phone for 3:30, went back upstairs to my bedroom, and fell on my bed like a dead person.
It didn't take long to get back to sleep, thank goodness...
————— Station of Awakening —————
I awoke to a blinding light...
Wait, what? Deja vu much?
As I came to my senses it occurred to me that I was laying down on a bright surface. A VERY bright surface... What kind of a floor emits light? Ugh.
What did I know at this point? This wasn't my bedroom. This wasn't my bed.
